There has been no official announcement that PCLinuxOS 2009 has been released, and I only saw a post on the PCLinuxOS forum from wamukota that prompted me to look at the download server, and indeed there is a pclinuxos-2009.iso available.
Are the Ripper Gang waiting for all the mirrors to sync before making the release announcement? Or are they going to rename it to Test Release 7? What goes? Whichever, I am already downloading it and will fire it up on VirtualBox, and possibly even install it on my VAIO.
